    Hi,

    I have accidentally deleted a folder in my H drive which is mapped to a folder on the server.

    unfortunately, I dont have a backup of it ... where do things that we delete go - as I cant find it in my recycle bin.

    I have also checked the recyble bin of the server but cant find it?

    Please help.

    Thanks

    If you IT department does backups they can recover it, If not your sol.

    When something is deleted on a mapped drive it's usually gone. Unless IT has safeguards setup.

    How is IT supposed to safeguards setups?

    Short of taking backups? are they supposed to configure the recycle bin on the server differently or something?

    thx

    The H: drive is not on your computer so would not be in your recycle bin or the server's after you deleted it from your computer.

    IT is supposed to safeguard data by having backups.
